Hi all

normaly I'm a aircraft builder, so this is my first attempt on a figure. I took the 1/16 MiniArt Athenian Hoplite, as it goes for a small amount of money - may be a wrong decission, anyway.

This is where I am now:



my attempt for the shield:



I've done two declas for the shield, to get a little more on it. Those declas are made with GIMP.

and the details for the sword


Thanks for looking - any comments are more wellcome

Cheers

Hey Martin
